Cycling 45:00 
Very easy Lodge Moor loop. Upper L arm (the crippled one) was a bit sore with the reach to the handlebars.

Circuits - just some stretching and easy stuff. Quads a bit sore but not too bad.
Running 3:57:19 
So entered in mid February and got put on the waiting list... so didn't do any long runs. Then got an email last Tuesday saying I had a place! Been looking forward to it as have run all parts of the route lots of times just never the whole circuit at once... yet a bit apprehensive about crashing halfway round.
Started steady up to Ringing Roger and then settled into a nice pace and had a good rhythm up WinHill to the new checkpoint. Tbh not a massive fan of the new checkpoint down by ladybower.. recce'd a short cut through the woods on Tuesday but we were told in the pre-race briefing we had to go straight down, which I did along with everyone around me. But then running along the track people behind were cutting through the forest. Even they were questioning whether they were allowed. Really slow up WinHill from the bottom as there were so many people going slow and couldn't easily get past. Overtook loads of people up Lose Hill some of who questioned why I was running?..Because it's a fell race... Got to Mam Nick in 5th and stayed in the same position until the finish. Felt pretty good until 3 hours at east of Edale Cross then started feeling tired.. forced down more food and drink and was ok until the finish. The last hour felt a long way but then realised I could maybe get sub-4 hours when I was getting to Ringing Roger so tried to push on.
Would definitey do it again! Really enjoyed it apart from the 30 minutes after east of Edale Cross. The hills were definitely my strong point and it was good for morale to start slow and then overtake people. Got the food and drink right. Maybe in future should do some long runs first!
Running 54:02 
In rivelin. Left foot arch aching a fair amount and worse after. Had this for over a year now.
